Finished already

Finished the Bent Creek bunny. While technically I have finished stitching it, it has yet to make it into an actual completed finish. Ah, well.

Stitchy notes and pic:

Design: Hare Lines

Designer: Bent Creek

Fabric: 28 count black jobelan

Fibers: Weeks Dye Works Snowflake for the bunny, Chartreuse for the border. (I'm thinking that good substitutes would be DMC B5200 and 992 or Crescent Colours Antique Lace and Frozen Margarita.).

Quite frankly, I have no clue why I bothered with the Weeks Dye Works 'Snowflake'. Even on the black, you cannot really see the subtle variegation in the thread, even close up. It's a shame because it has pale blues and pinks in it, if you look close enough. I should have remembered the Whispered by the Wind "Snow' freebie that I stitched a few years ago. I used the same thread and same black 28 count fabric and you can't even tell that I used variegated thread at all. It sucks, but whatareyagonnado?

I have absolutely no clue as to how I will finish this project, however, I have a year to figure it out. :)
